Detailed Information:
The Midwest High Speed Rail Association is a membership-based non-profit organization.

We advocate the development of fast, frequent, dependable passenger railroad services in a network connecting over 200 cities and airports in nine Midwestern states.

Our members include individuals, chambers of commerce, municipalities and corporations. They share the common desire to enjoy the benefits of fast, frequent, dependable railroad service.

The benefits include more productive and enjoyable travel, stronger communities, more sustainable transportation use and more.

Trains in our proposed network will be designed to operate with high-reliability and comfort. They would operate at speeds and service levels sufficient to attract travelers primarily from automobiles, and feeder flights.

We believe that new, high-performance trains, combined with capacity increases to the existing rail network, can yield high-quality service in the short term and set the stage for very high speeds in the future.

The network would build upon existing transportation assets and provide strong intermodal connections to existing airports, intercity bus routes and local transit networks, in order to:

Provide a comfortable, convenient, productive and safe choice for business and personal travel.
Make the Midwest a more attractive place to live and do business.
Slow the growth of auto congestion and its related energy and pollution impacts.
